A wonderful setting fot the Friday Cocktail.

A rather demanding race around Belle-ile (probably the most extreme offshore sailing in the history of the regatta)- Nice run downwind along the western shore of Belle-ile.

On Saturday afternoon, Colin Simmonds, late on start, hoisted his spinnaker in a way unworthy of his reputation. (Photos are held in escrow).

A chilly, windy, cloudy leg back to La-Trinité/mer via Houat. Hard to imagine that we were bathing on this exact beach on Isle of Houat last year. The crêpes bretonnes complètes will help to cheer and warm up the crews on Saturday night.
